By: Finance Foodie, in collaboration with Slow Cookers Success

Cooking dinner during the week is just the worst, right? You’ve spent all day working and just want to come home, pop something in the microwave and go to sleep. Especially if you’re cooking for more than just yourself!

But this doesn’t have to be the case. Here’s three easy ways to make your next midweek family dinner a great one. These three quick and easy ways of feeding your family will be sure to put the pleasure back into the ominous after work chore that dinnertime too often becomes.

A good stir-fry is a sure fire way to keep the family healthy and happy. With none of the stress of different cooking times and buying specific ingredients, making a stir-fry is the perfect versatile weeknight family meal. Just fire up your wok, grab any meat, seafood or vegetables you have in your fridge, mix them together with your favourite Asian cooking sauce and you’re good to go. In 15 minutes, you’ll have a tasty meal fit for the whole family, without any of the hassle of preparing a million different ingredients to be cooked separately.

Pasta dishes are another super easy, super versatile way of making dinner for the whole family in no time at all. All you really need to get started is a saucepan, some boiling water, and a tasty pasta sauce. Whether you want a rich and creamy pasta bake, a no-fuss spaghetti carbonara, or a hearty stroganoff, pasta is one of the best foods to suit any family’s taste. With so many delicious dishes using pasta as their base, no matter what ingredients you have on hand, you’ll almost definitely be able to whip something up (just don’t forget the pasta). The best thing is, most pasta dishes can be cooked in less than 30 minutes! That means you can come home from work and actually relax a little, before putting on your chef’s hat and making a quick, easy and healthy meal that everyone can enjoy.

Using a slow cooker:
A great way to take the stress out of making a family dinner in the week is by using a slow cooker. Whether you want to make a spicy chili, a hearty Italian lasagne or even just a sweet and delicious apple cobbler – slow cooking is the key, and there’s really no limit to what you can make! With a programmable slow cooker, you simply put your ingredients in it in the morning, set the timer, and come home to a fantastic meal after work that the whole family will enjoy. It’s completely stress-free and the best way to keep yourself, and your family, happy after a hard day at the office.
